Also that in the Bible a divorce always ends a marriage.
That is not a true statement. All divorces as far as the law of the land ends all marriages
, but not according to God's word
does all divorces end a marriage, or Jesus' teaching concerning the law of marraige is wrong.
Mark 16:18~"Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery."
So your statement is not biblical.
Matthew 5:31,32~"It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery."
Here the Lord Jesus added a clause exception
to marriage and divorce, the "only exception"
given in the word of God~the sin of fornication which takes in MANY SEXUAL SINS
from incest (1st Corinthians 5)~to Sodomy (Jude 7) .....bestiality.....to Necrophilia....to Paraphilias, etc. Marriage and divorce are LIMITED to sexual sins~I see no other exceptions in the word of God.
If my wife ever dies, I WOULD NOT marry a woman with a living husband, EXCEPT she left him because of fornication.
I will add this: IF my wife left me for whatever reason, I WOULD marry again to a woman who does NOT have a living husband....WHY do you ask? because men in the scripture were ALLOW to have more than one living wife at a time and were NOT considered by God to be living in adultery. That is so clear in the scriptures. A woman was NOT allowed to have two husbands at a time
~no where do you ever see that practice in the word of God. If you do not think that's fair then take it up with God when you see him on that day!
